Climbing Kiln

We are an Obori Soma ware kiln with 260 years of history, the techniques and spirit of which have been passed down to this day since our founding in 1760.

The newly constructed climbing kiln in our new workshop in Iwaki City is lit once a year to produce ceramic works. Fired at 1300 degrees Celsius, each piece exhibits a different expression and no two are the same. We would love nothing more than for you to visit and hold some of the work coming from our climbing kiln in your own hands.
